I prefer the open front with a push bar design over the flatfront ones.

Yep, if you're going to do heavy mowing an open front is a huge help.

I ran into a guy who does tree clearing in our area, and he always subs out the brush mowing portion of the clearing to a another guy with a Supertrak and a Fecon head. He and i have been friends for quite a few years, and he wants me to look into buying one to do his stuff that won't require a mulching head. I guess i better look in the CID and Bradco Brush mowers. .. my local Takeuchi and Kobelco dealer is a very good friend of mine, and he happens to be a Bradco dealer too..

Here's the Bradco Extreme Duty Ground Shark, it would handle 3" material super easy, but it needs ~30gpm minimum, according to the specs. The regular/low flow Ground Shark is rated for up to 4" material and should be able to handle that easy enough. It only needs 15-25gpm and can be had for ~$6k. The Extreme duty is ~$11k.
Man that looks like so much fun!
